Our heartfelt sympathies to dear Sue, Sarah, Rebecca and James and the extended Humeniuk and Hallam families. We have such great memories of the happy times in Plantation Rd when we were all young,happy and busy in those days. Sorry we couldn't make it to Roman's funeral today - a doctor's appointment ran really late. Sending our love to you all, Brian, Rhonda, Jenny and Paul ❤❤❤❤
In Loving Memory
